There are times when mothers think that working at home is the best thing that they can do because they can take care of the house while earning money at the same time. It has been proven that this is not actually true; there are some moms who end up giving up their work because they are just doing so many things. Time management can be hard if you do not know what you should do. Here are some tips that will help you out:

  • Keep an organizer and list down the things that you need to do. This will keep you informed in case you forget anything.
  • Do not procrastinate. It might be fun to observed pure beauties on the Internet but really, procrastinating will not do anything good for you.
  • Follow your schedule.

It might be hard but it will get easier once you get used to it.

Homemaking in a Fabulous Way

mommy time

Staying at home to care for your little ones and be a full time housewife need not take its toll on your once stalwart and impeccable fashion sense. It need not take its toll on your not-too-frequent indulgence or your make you look older than your actual age. I know for sure that mountain of laundry and loads of other home chores can take the better of you. Keeping the home spic and span can be way too tiring and don’t even let me go to child-minding, which is actually a 24/7 job that eats most bulk of your time.

Fret not as you can still be as glamorous and fabulous like you used to. Get some me-time over the weekends and treat yourself to a relaxing manicure-pedicure treatment. Get a new haircut or don a sexy wig, if you want to be more adventurous. Go to a thrift shop to get some new dresses and blouses to update your wardrobe.

Who says you need to be ugly while staying at home. I bet the little ones will appreciate having a mommy diva keeping watch over them all the time.

Many companies from retail stores to automotive insurance providers are hiring customer service representatives to work from home. These telecommuting positions would involve the stay-at-home mom receiving phone calls that are routed to their home and helping the customer on the end of the line. Sometimes, they’ll have a question about a product or service. At other times, they may need assistance navigating the company’s website.

Virtual assistants are in high demand. Many people can’t afford a full-time secretary, but could use someone to handle appointment setting and paperwork. A virtual assistant usually provides these types of services for several people on a part-time basis. Most communication is done through email with the rare phone call. Virtual assistants rarely meet their clients in person.

Freelance transcription services are also growing in popularity. Information is recorded and transferred to the transcriptionist’s computer through the internet. The transcriptionist listens to the recording and creates a written copy.

The beauty of these jobs is that most of them will allow you to set your own hours and work from the comfort of your home. While the kids are napping or off at school, you could be making a little pocket money for your family’s next vacation or to pay off that extra bill. Although the examples listed here are popular ways to make extra money at home, the possibilities are virtually endless.
